A HUDDERSFIELD man's bid to break the world blindfold landspeed record has been postponed - again.
Residents living near Elvington Airfield in York have complained about potential noise levels at the event this weekend when Curtis Paxman, 29, director of Fenay Bridge brewing supplies firm Brewfitt, had aimed to smash the record and raise thousands of pounds for charity.
The bid was postponed last September due to worries over safety cover for the record bid involving Mr Paxman and other drivers.
A spokesman for Curtis said: "He was disappointed for his sponsors, who had put the money up for the Blind Sport Charity this event is due to support.
"He also felt he had a great chance of breaking the world record, and he is getting quite frustrated.
"It will happen at some stage, but he is waiting on new dates and venue."
The record is held by Cheshire's Mike Newman, who achieved an average speed of 144.7mph in a Jaguar.
Mr Paxman was to make his attempt in a Formula 1 Tyrrell racing car which is capable of speeds of more than 200mph. He is a keen motorsport enthusiast and hoped to raise at least £3,700 for the British Blind Sport Charity via the challenge.
